Full solutions for World Of Chemistry | 2nd Edition
A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.
A list of metals in order of decreasing ease of oxidation. (Section 4.4)
A CRO bond. carboxylic acid derivative (Sect. 21.6): A compound that is similar in structure to a carboxylic acid (RCOOH) but the OH group of the carboxylic acid has been replaced with a different group, Z, where Z is a heteroatom such as Cl, O, N, etc. Nitriles (R!C#N) are also considered to be carboxylic acid derivatives because they have the same oxidation state as carboxylic acids.
The number of times the cycle of chain propagation steps repeats in a chain reaction.
deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA).
A type of nucleic acid. (25.4)
The ability to do work.
An amine in which nitrogen is one of the atoms of a ring
A catalyst that is in a different phase from that of the reactant substances. (Section 14.7)
A bond that results from the force of attraction between two oppositely charged ions.
On an aromatic ring, the C3 position.
The arrangement in space of the atoms of a molecule. (Section 9.2)
The change in specifi c rotation that occurs when an a or b hemiacetal form of a carbohydrate in aqueous solution is converted to an equilibrium mixture of the two forms.
parts per billion (ppb)
The concentration of a solution in grams of solute per 109 (billion) grams of solution; equals micrograms of solute per liter of solution for aqueous solutions. (Section 13.4)
The process that occurs in plant leaves by which light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide and water to carbohydrates and oxygen. (Section 23.3)
The sequence of amino acids along a protein chain. (Section 24.7)
Sanger dideoxy method
A method developed by Frederick Sanger for sequencing DNA molecules
Secondary (2°) amine
An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to two carbons and one hydrogen
A region of space around a nucleus that can be occupied by electrons, corresponding to a principal quantum number
A recording in an NMR spectrum of a nuclear magnetic resonance
A reaction in which one stereoisomer is formed in preference to all others. A stereoselective reaction may be enantioselective or diastereoselective, as the case may be.
